After securing their second successive win in the Premier League last weekend, Leeds United are beginning to pick up a bit of momentum again.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side followed up their first victory of 2021, against Newcastle, with a superb 3-1 victory away at top-four chasing Leicester City.
The Whites are back in Premier League action tonight when they take on Everton at Elland Road, and Bielsa has some major injury concerns heading into the game.
Below is a look at how Leeds might line up when Carlo Ancelotti’s side come to town on Wednesday night.
The back-five should remain unchanged, with the Whites, of course, still without summer signing Diego Llorente, whose career at Elland Road is yet to take off after some rotten luck with injuries.
The one enforced change that Bielsa has already confirmed will have to be made comes further forward, with Rodrigo ruled out after being substituted early on in the clash against the Foxes with an injury.
That could see the return of Mateusz Klich into the engine room, whilst there is also a doubt over winger Raphinha. If the Brazilian doesn’t make it, the £10.8m-rated Helder Costa could come into the side.
And up top, Patrick Bamford also has an asterisk next to his name, with the English ace suffering a suspected dead leg, Again, if he isn’t able to pass a late fitness check, Tyler Roberts could well get the nod to play.
Predicted XI: Meslier; Ayling, Struijk, Cooper, Alioski; Phillips, Klich, Dallas, Costa, Harrison; Roberts.
